President Donald Trump is completely hung up on his Twitter follower count. And he let the social media giant’s CEO know it.
According to a Washington Post report, Trump spent much of Tuesday’s meeting with Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, among others, complaining that the site was artificially deflating how many followers he has.
Dorsey reportedly tried to soothe the President, telling him that fluctuating follower counts often indicate Twitter’s attempt to purge bots or fake accounts from the site.
Donald Trump Jr. has also trumpeted his fears about “shadow-banning,” a term for social media platforms allegedly suppressing conservative voices. The platforms have insisted on their impartiality in the face of the accusations.
